NANOWRIMO , beeyotch! (For those not in the know, NaNoWriMo is short for National Novel Writing Month.)
This is my fourth year making a for reals, honest to goodness attempt to “win.” The prize? The bragging rights to say I have written a 50,000 word novel. In just 30 days. Also, some nice swag if I do in fact, “win.”
November is also NaBloPoMo – National Blog Posting Month over at BlogHer . So I figured hey – I’m already writing a minimum of 1700 words daily, what’s a few hundred more?
Because folks: I have apparently lost my g-ddamn mind.
My friend Carrie shared with me her November plans: she’s participating in NO!vember, that is – for 30 days, she’s saying NO! to any new projects. I kind of like her idea better
Thankfully, this year should go a lot better than years past where I’ve tried to do all of this at once. BlogHer has some great NaBloPoMo prompts and I’m really, really, really excited about my novel for NaNoWriMo. Tomorrow, I’ll give you a little taste. But what makes this year different than others? I have an outline. AND AN ENDING. Hallelujah, praise the Lord.
